Spinal joint instability joint instability is defined as a loss of spinal tissue integrity in the muscles, tendons and especially ligaments it can be referred to as spondylolisthesis (anterolisthesis), lateral listhesis (rotatory subluxation) or retrolisthesis, depending on which direction the vertebra slips.
Listhesis conditions include spondylolisthesis, anterolisthesis, retrolisthesis, and lateral listhesis joint instability, or loss of spinal tissue integrity in the muscles, tendons, andligaments, can be referred to by these types of listhesis terms.
